This Could be the Perfect Bib Pattern!
Every quilter needs a good bib pattern, right? This one by Amy at Nana Company surely has to be a contender for the title of best bib pattern.
Not only is it easy to make, but you can alter its look in unlimited ways. The version shown here is made of simple patchwork from fabric scraps.
We can also see it with a cute applique pattern on the front (duckies, a puppy dog, etc.) or dressed up a bit like this one is.
In fact, you may already have an orphan block that would work for the front of the bib. You might also machine or hand embroider the child’s name on the front. A cute fabric panel of the right size would also make a great bib.
Any piece of patchwork will work, provided it’s large enough to cut the bib pattern from. You may need to make it a little larger if you plan to center something on the patchwork or appliqued piece that you’ll use for the front.
The possibilities for this bib pattern are truly endless!
The instructions are for a bib where the front and back are sewn together and turned so that it has neat edges.
Chenille makes a great backing and a fuzzy edge (see examples here, as well as cute variations for the front). Or, add a binding, if you prefer.
However you choose to construct this bib, it will be welcomed by new moms and dads. The pattern is perfect for baby showers, welcoming a new child or grandchild, or holiday gifts for new parents.
Plus, the bib goes together quickly – more or less so depending on how you choose to construct and/or personalize the front. If you need a gift in a hurry, remember that a simple design from cute fabric can be just as impressive as a complex one!

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
